Sakura 桜

"If you can't excel with talent, triumph with effort." ~ Weinbaum

 

Taken at High Park during the Cherry Blossom Festival. In 1959, the trees were planted as a gift from Japan to Canada. The Japanese view the cherry blossoms as a metaphor for life, beautiful, but fleeting. They're also a sign of rebirth and strength.

 

Shot with my Nikon. View it in Black.
